Tutorial: PiOT 101 – Raspberry Pi + Internet of Things

PiOT 101 Equipment

*Updated on Aug 21, 2015 to include a chapter on building a real-time sensor dashboard

Are you looking for a thorough “getting started” tutorial that takes you from unboxing your Pi to putting together a real, practical application? Something that teaches you the basics of setting up your Pi, using a breadboard to build simple circuits, and running simple Python scripts to control those circuits? Perhaps you are looking for an easy-to-follow tutorial that walks you through building a live Internet of Things project that streams data from sensors to a cloud service. If so, then we created a tutorial that you will love – PiOT 101.

The PiOT 101 tutorial started out as an in-person, beginners workshop hosted in Nashville, TN. After 10 workshops and constant tweaks, the tutorial that everyone was following became so thorough that hardly anyone asked a question or needed help finishing the entire workshop. Workshop attendees ranged from kids in fifth grade to engineers. By the time they finished, they all understood how to use a Pi to build something real and practical.

This tutorial is designed to take you from a complete novice to an Internet of Things (IoT) maker in two hours.


Project level: Beginner
Approximate time to complete: 2 Hours
Data points produced per month: varies (10s to 1000s of data points)

This tutorial is part of a new series, “Learning How to Build Real IoT Applications” >>
